Last season was a breakout year for the prop.
Regarded as a future Australian representative according to Andrew Johns, Saifiti is only getting better with age.
The local junior has represented Fiji alongside his twin brother Jacob and was selected to make his Origin debut in 2019, where he lined up alongside team-mate David Klemmer for the victorious New South Wales side.
Saifiti averaged 95 running metres per game for 2019.
ABOUT ME ...
Who am I ... Daniel Saifiti
Who is most important to me ... My family definitely, my brother and my partner, Mackenzie. Got a very big family
Greatest off-field achievement ... Being the first out of my family to go to Uni, I didn’t finish it but I would definitely go back
Something you wouldn’t know about me is.. Played soccer until Under 9’s, moved over to league probably because I was getting too big and slow, worked out well
I’d be lost without... My brother, Jacob
What I love most about living in Newcastle... Grew up on the Central Coast, bigger version of where I grew up, country town by the beach
People would describe me as ... Caring and genuine
As a kid my hero was ... My uncle Paul or my Pop
The last book I read was... The Subtle Art, first and only book I’ve ever read
My favourite song to listen to on game day is ... Cool Out by Imagine Dragons, I listen to things that mellow me out
My favourite thing to do in Newcastle is ... Go to the beach or go to the baths, Merewether Surf house
My greatest on field moment... Definitely making my Origin debut this year, pretty cool doing it in Perth in front of my family and making my debut for the Knights too.
